The Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce is the place to start
to learn more about the area or to promote your business. There are seven offering
business networking opportunities and visitor information.
When I’m traveling, whether for a freelance job or a personal
trip, the first place I head to is the local business or visitors’ bureau. The
people there are knowledgeable, and they always have useful information about
the area. I have to admit, I gather up tons of brochures and booklets to find
out what’s going on and where to go.
Along with visitors’ guides and brochures about area activities,
restaurants, and lodging, some of them also act as the official Tourism Development
Council (TDC) or Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) for their communities. Together
they provide a valuable marketing effort aimed at bringing tourists and new
residents to the area.
Businesses of all kinds, from sole proprietorships to
multi-national corporations rely on these organizations to help promote their
businesses both within the community and to people outside the region. Monthly
networking and social gatherings, education seminars, and retreats allow Chamber members to pursue personal and professional goals.
Along the Grand Strand, the following offices work locally
to promote businesses and their communities.
